Bridging Middle-Graders' Understanding of Mathematics with the Geometer's Sketchpad

Experiences of 7th and 8th graders in constructing mathematical ideas involving symmetries, transformations, scaling, one and two-point perspective will be shared. Evaluation of students and student projects will be shared as well. The ability of average students to use the Geometer's Sketchpad, with meaning is the central focus of this presentation.
